African-American Cultural Garden

The African-American Cultural Garden in Cleveland opened their new office on Central at East 79th by hosting a celebration of Juneteenth. Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day is a holiday that commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas in June 1865, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South.
